World Meets US translated the following French and German articles:
• Le Figaro: American NIE on Iran Nukes 'a Fake' Designed to 'Save Face: "This [NIE] is deliberate American disinformation. ... the publication of this NIE is a further example of the politicization and manipulation of American intelligence."
• Nederlands Dagblad: America Unfairly Blamed for Climate Obstructionism: "The proceedings at Bali were taken hostage by Europe's antagonism toward the U.S., enabling Al Gore to score in an open goal."
• Financial Times Deutschland: 2008 a High-Stakes U.S. Election Year for Europe: "A Democratic President or a woman President would be seen as a symbol of change. But if a Republican wins the U.S. election of 2008, the long-term Atlantic rift will be insurmountable... One must assume that when in doubt, Republicans will try anything to awaken resentment in the white men of the American republic - against the reign of a woman or the son of an African."
• The Times: 'Poodle' Blair takes role in White House video: "For a man derided by his critics as "Bush's poodle", it is perhaps brave of Tony Blair to appear in a White House video featuring the US President's pet dogs."
